Hearthfire is the second piece of downloadable content for Skyrim. It allows players to build their own house from the ground up, start a family and acquire numerous rooms to expand your new property.
The official summary of the expansion is as follows "With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up - from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter's workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children."
It has been criticized on the fact that the features it offers were available as mods through the steam workshop before it's announcement and released.
